Aye Aye, Sailor boy!

I was inspired by our recent trip to the Italian Riveria to redecorate my son’s room nautical style. I think anyone thinking of giving their kids’ room a spruce should give this a try. It is fairly easy to find and make things related to the seaside and beaches. Kids enjoy picking seashells, learning how to tie nautical knots and paint wooden hanging ornaments too. I reckon I have another 5 years before my 3 year old decides he wants to cover the walls with his favorite rock band/superhero posters and insist on us painting his ceiling black.
